Speaker Gingrich, you have too many progressive ideas for this conservative. I actually gave you a second glance after Herman Cain stepped out of the wrestling match the media wing of the Democrat Party has created of our primary. I even dismissed the stupidity coming from the other progressive’s camp, ie: Mittens Romney, but I have to tell you, I think you have lost your mind. Paul Ryan is the guy who has identified and told this country how to fix our economic debacle, and if you, as a potential Republican candidate for President, cannot even figure out he is the ONE who knows what he is talking about, then bye bye!
You see, I could care less how many women you have been with, and I don’t care about your Tiffany’s bill; hell, if my husband had your money and didn’t buy me Tiffany’s he would be where I am putting you, in the doghouse. I heard that your book in 2009 talks about your great love and affection for the communist union boss, Andy Stern, about whom I have written extensively – because I, as an “un-educated” American, recognize the Marxism inherent in American unions in the 21st century, but you, the “educated” man could not in 2009. So, Mr. Gingrich, are you a socialist? A communist? You support and advocate ideas from people who have declared themselves to be one or the other.
I am hoping that the rest of the Republican base can take a step back and take another look at you again and in so doing – REJECT you. It is shameful that in the age of the TEA Party patriot that We The People could not get a straight up conservative candidate. It is the ONLY ideology that has not been tried with a Republican Congress and Senate and Presidency. The last conservative we had in office was President Reagan, and he had the unfortunate situation of having to deal with Democrats in the Congress or we might be 10 steps further away from being a socialist country “This Is Not The 1990’s
Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, the influential Budget Committee chairman, has kept his distance from the GOP primary. But after reading Newt Gingrich’s latest comments about entitlement reform, he says the contenders must seriously address the debt crisis, not play political games.
In an interview with Coffee & Markets, Gingrich said that Republicans should not “impose” solutions that are “very, very unpopular.” Ronald Reagan, he noted, “ran to be a popular president, not to maximize suicide.”
In order to “govern over the long run,” leaders need “the American people [to] think you’re doing a good job and think you’re doing what they want,” he continued.
Ryan, in an interview with National Review Online, says that he disagrees with Gingrich, and urges Republicans to confront fiscal problems, irrespective of political risk. Worrying about electoral “suicide,” he says, is a disservice to voters, “who don’t want to be pandered to like children.”
“This is not the 1990s,” Ryan says. “The ‘Mediscare’ is not working and we should not back down from this fight. I, for one, believe the country is ready, they’re hungry for it. They are ready to hear real solutions. We shouldn’t wait around for the status quo to become popular.”
“Leaders don’t follow the polls, leaders change the polls,” Ryan says. “We have moved so far in advancing entitlement reform, not just in Congress but in this [presidential] race, with most of the candidates embracing comprehensive entitlement reform. That has been a very good thing. At this point, we should be moving forward, not moving backwards.”
True leaders do indeed change the polls, they bring Americans to or against a policy or legislation, a good example would be the amnesty bill that President Bush told us, via the media, while overseas he would be signing, We The People said no sir you will not and he brought us all together to say HELL NO! I am now going to be working towards ensuring that you are not the candidate as much as I am working to ensure that Romney is not the candidate. This country is dying, it needs new life and it needs a President who is willing to do the hard things like cutting the government in half or at least by a healthy 1/3rd and who doesn’t spend more than they bring in. Sadly, you are obviously not that man!
